In the course, we will use collective research and mapping
to bring information together in an innovative way, to point out
conflicts of interest and symbiotic relationships, in order to gain
a deeper understanding of what is really happening in some of the
most precious natural environments on our planet. We will chart
their value to understand the dangers they are facing and how we
might balance them.
The course will touch on radical cartographies, analyse
value systems; such as ecosystem services, the wealth economy,
embedded carbon footprint and modern slavery supply chains. We will
analyse and map the relationships between biodiversity, human
labour management, geo-capitalism and the value of clean natural
resources such as freshwater and oxygen.
The output of the course will be a set of large complex drawings
and models which will present these interrelations combining latest
data modelling techniques, input from experts living and working
with communities on the ground, the analysis of historic
information and first-hand contemporary narratives.
